PERFECT FLAWS

napowrimo#21..prompt is perfectly flawed.........this is a DRAFT

PERFECT FLAWS


secure in my insecurities and failures
and unknow wisdom
remaining true to the cosmic game
played with all its errors
sincere in the truths never told
that succeeded the goals never scored
as nothing crossed the line of humility
barren of events between failure and frustration
within the obscurities of two souls
and unknown theories of conspiracy
sitting at my gypsy window of imagination
drinking rum with Castro
discussing how Socialism is not perfect
with battles of forgotten memories
how Pollock was perfectly imperfect
in his paintings and human failures
learning all is nothing and nothing is all
writing the impossible
perfect poetry

I like where this seems to be heading Wayne, the flaw of personal politics maybe? I can see you're writing your way down into it, so far so good.

We are all perfectly imperfect, aren't we? I love that this is a "draft" poem -- a perfect draft!

This has a wonderful rhythm it carries you along like a train, and I love 'gypsy window', great image.
